The Maverick after it exploded
|For||United Liberty Paper|
|Unlocked by||Dust Off|
Paper Trail is a mission given to Niko Bellic by United Liberty Paper. This Mission is one of the missions that are not triggered by going to the bosses destination; instead, it is triggered by a phone call from ULPC after Dust Off. United Liberty Paper's mechanics have finished inspecting the helicopter. Now, Russian businessman Eduard Borodin finally needs to be brought down. Niko will be phoned and directed by his contact to a landing strip in Northern Algonquin where Little Jacob is smoking in the passenger seat of the helicopter.
Get inside the helicopter and fly towards the blip. As you go, Little Jacob says that there's a rocket launcher on board and he will personally take down Borodin from the helicopter. The target is in another chopper, flying around Liberty City, and you'll need to follow him and wait for an opportunity to take it down. United Liberty Paper. doesn't want any civilian casualties, so you'll have to wait until the target is flying over the water before firing a shot at it.
Chase the target in the helicopter until you get to sea - an area with no bystanders or witnesses. Get to the same altitude and go to the right of Borodin's helicopter. This will give Jacob the chance to shoot the helicopter. After a few shots, Little Jacob will hit the helicopter.
You will see a cinematic execution where the helicopter is on fire and falls towards sea. It explodes before this happens, therefore killing Eduard.
After this you have to land the helicopter on the helitours helipad to complete the mission.
- If you fail to take Eduard down, the flight will continue above Acter Industrial Park, Alderney. Even if you haven't unlocked Alderney yet, you won't gain a six star wanted level when you pass the West River.
- Jacob will smoke while in the chopper, causing Niko to ask him to stop, because he cant see. Though afterwards he says "just smoke it"
- There is a glitch where Jacob will only fire one rocket. This glitch can be identified from the start if the player enters the helicopter and Jacob doesn't say a thing.
- After completing this mission, thereafter if Niko gets involved in a high wanted level situation and gets wasted or arrested, soon afterwards he'll get a phone call from U.L. Paper berating him for getting into trouble.
